Prime day rolled around so I bought myself a new telephoto lens, high quality glass and image stabilizer. I suspect this will take some spectacular astro-photos but I would definitely appreciate some settings to try out from people here.
I bought this to take pictures of the eclipse, and general wildlife photos too, but there is one slight problem
My welding glass(shade 14) lens is roughly 50mm, around 48 really, and the new lens is 67mm.
What would anyone here recommend doing to mount this in front, how do I block the sides to avoid light flooding the image, and is there an adapter I can buy or do I need to apply some DIY?
Moon finally came out, was too lazy to setup my tripod so I quickly took a few shots by hand, didn't come out too bad
Definitely an improvement over previous lens.
